Is Amazon Prime racist against blacks?



Amazon.com, which is run by the very liberal Jeff Bezos who owns the Washington Post, is being accused of racism. This is no surprise given how liberals are usually the ones with racist impulses. In this case the problem is that the Amazon Prime delivery service doesn't deliver to black neighborhoods! Could it be that Bezos nurtures a deep hatred of black people?


In Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, and Washington, cities still struggling to overcome generations of racial segregation and economic inequality, black citizens are about half as likely to live in neighborhoods with access to Amazon same-day delivery as white residents.

The disparity in two other big cities is significant, too. In New York City, same-day delivery is available throughout Manhattan, Staten Island, and Brooklyn, but not in the Bronx and some majority-black neighborhoods in Queens. In some cities, Amazon same-day delivery extends many miles into the surrounding suburbs but isn’t available in some ZIP codes within the city limits

The most striking gap in Amazon’s same-day service is in Boston, where three ZIP codes encompassing the primarily black neighborhood of Roxbury are excluded from same-day service, while the neighborhoods that surround it on all sides are eligible.

Amazon cites several reasons a ZIP code within a city may be excluded: too few Prime members to justify the expense of sending out trucks and drivers, or the area is too far from the closest Amazon warehouse. “Distance matters,” Berman says. “At some point, with the math involved, we can’t make it work—in time, or in cost for the carrier. There is a diminishing return on orders.” In some cases, Amazon says, it’s difficult to find delivery partners willing to serve the area.

Really? Why is it difficult to find delivery partners in the Bronx, or the Anacostia section of Washington DC? I think vendors would jump at the chance to work in such safe, well-ordered communities!

What else could it be besides racism?

All kidding aside, this mirrors the debate about discrimination in lending in certain zip codes. When the government found out that banks were giving fewer loans in minority neighborhoods, they cried "racism!" and forced the banks to lend more, leading to the real estate crash a few years ago. This is the same thing. This has nothing to do with racism, it's the fact that fewer customers with money are buying from these neighborhoods. The fact that these neighborhoods are extremely dangerous does not help either.

But Bloomberg wrote an enormous article to document this, the length you would expect about a story about a cure for cancer, to document this sinister trend in "racist" package delivery.
